gingrich doesn't go quite that far, but he says that romney needs to reform his thinking. >> i think they're only now beginning to come to grips with the general election. they had a very -- >> scary -- >> they had a very successful primary strategy. in a primary you can raise enough money to build a motor boat and drive to where you want to get to in the primary. in the general election you're like a sail boat. the system is so much bigger than you. >> it is hard to go from a motor boat to a sail boat, known who is familiar with yachting knows that. ben smith, i want to go right to you and talk about sort of the problem facing this campaign. first, when is the last time that governor mitt romney gave a speech or did an event or otherwise made some sort of policy news that had an impact on voters and on this race? >> i mean i don't know. it's been a while. that is one of the things about these campaigns. not that romney has lost it all in one moment through a fatal gaffe although there have been bad moments but every day he's losing it day by day each day in a new and creative method and
mccaskill? my view, jennifer, if i might all of the enablers like newt gingrich, they're asking women of the g.o.p. to put forth this testimonial for todd akin. my view is that everyone in the republican party should tell us where they stand on todd akin's candidacy. because this is a party that's got an free ride. todd akin may have said what he said in august but the republican platform is basically todd akin's which is that there are no exemptions in the case of rape or incest for women who need abortions. so i think we need to take a measure of the extremism of a todd akin and tether it to a republican party that you know, is now going to come forward and support this guy? >> jennifer: that's a really great point. we could call about -- the nation could, "the war room" could, call upon the mainstream media. they don't necessarily come on "the war room" all the time but they go before mainstream media. ask them. today, you've got akin's race getting a lot of money from the outside republicans again including ji
at getting under the skin of rick perry and newt gingrich. that's something obama has to watch out for as well. >> erin, you've been in ohio. unemployment there is at 7.2% which is better than the national average. the president's leading in the latest polls there. so how concerned is the romney camp about that state, and what is their plan? >> there is some serious concern in the romney campaign and in republicans throughout ohio that president obama is in much better shape. they point to cleveland where there is a very heavy population base, manufacturing is big there and the auto bailout really did help industries up there. and some of the thinking goes, if president obama can turn out a lot of people in northern ohio, it's over in ohio. and they might be best to look elsewhere. now, the romney campaign is taking a harder line against china than ever before. he's always been very strong against china. so that's a message that they think will resonate in ohio. another thing we heard from mitt romney tempering his tax plan, saying he is planning to cut exemptions so people can't l
opponents out at the meetings and they will tell you whether it is rudy guiliani newt gingrich they will tell stories how tough he is that he can be a political killer. stuart: the assessment was he comes across an old school gentleman. >> both are true. he feels a tremendous moral obligation and a lot of humblest those with that. he can be tough in the debates. stuart: going to vote for him? >> absolutely. stuart: thanks for joining us. we appreciate it. [talking over each other] stuart: mcdonald's now is down big. why is that? nicole: they're talking about same-store sales for early september and this is looking like it is going to be their worst month on record for the year 2012. couple things they are facing. intense competition. one thing doing well is there low-cost menus are helping bring the traffic back so mcdonald's, analysts are saying the outlook -- they got to cut down same-store sales numbers going forward and that is why capital is cutting them to neutral. stuart: is that a flower on your shirt? french fries? >> the mcdonald's story. it is the baby -- a small fry
